Hail Holy Queen Lyrics and Guitar Chords

Being May and all, I’ve been playing some Mary hymns on the guitar, and wanted to share some of the chords with you. I only dabble in guitar, so these chords are super easy to play. These Hail Holy Queen chords are for beginners. If I can play it, you can play it. Trust me. 😉

The cause of joy to men below, O Maria
The Spring through which all graces flow, O Maria
Angels all your praises bring,
Earth and heaven with us sing,
All creation echoing
Salve, Salve, Salve Regina!

I know it’s really frustrating when I’m searching for Catholic guitar chords online, and I can’t find them, so hopefully this will help some folks out. 😉 Happy May!

    Thank you so much for doing this! One question what type of strumming pattern are you using?

  2. Useful info. Lucky me I discovered your site by chance, and I’m surprised why this twist of fate didn’t happened in advance!
